The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the General Services Administration (GSA) have issued a request for information (RFI) to identify technologies that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from commercial buildings.
The goal of this RFI is to support technologies and solutions that are ready for evaluation in occupied, operational buildings and have potential for equitable, widespread adoption in the U.S. marketplace.
This RFI covers three broad categories:
- High-Performance/Low-Carbon Building Technologies and Solutions: Technologies of interest include electrification of major building loads; larger scale and integrated heat pump systems, retrofit heat recovery systems, electrification of major loads, and building envelope retrofits.
- Onsite Energy Generation and Storage Systems: Technologies of interest include building-integrated photovoltaics, high-efficiency PV, solutions to better integrate PV and storage into building management systems, solar and geothermal, on-site distributed wind, and hydrogen fuel cells.
- Carbon Reducing or Capture: Technologies of interest include on-site carbon capture for fuel-fired processes and technologies that use next-generation, low, or no global warming potential refrigerants.
The deadline to submit your response to this RFI is December 7, 2021, at 5 p.m. ET. Responses to this RFI may be submitted by a single vendor or by a team. Submissions by a single vendor must include all capabilities required to deliver the proposed solution. You can review the RFI on GSA's website, available directly at Solicitation #FY22RFI101221. GSA will lead efforts on this RFI. Register for the informational webinar on November 10 at 1 p.m. ET. Email email@example.com if you have any questions regarding this RFI.
